A new Stolar Research center opened in Rio Rancho on Friday. The building will house the Raton-based company's military and homeland security division and provide space for 50 new employees.
Stolar provides technology and services to the mining industry.
New reports show the Albuquerque metro area saw job growth of more than one percent in the second quarter of the year. But Gov. Susana Martinez says the state still has a long way to go.
"I'm pleased to see the growth, but we have to be gaurded because there's still a lot of work to be done. We have done some good things in a bipartisan way with the legislature in cutting back the business by 22 percent," Gov. Martinez said.
But even with the job improvement, Albuquerque still has fewer jobs than before the recession.
